We build partnerships with a lot of different organizations. Some of them give us their time, some of them give us their expertise, and some of them donate really big things, like roofs and houses! All of them are important to us.
Housing First Minnesota Foundation
In 2016, the BATC Foundation (now Housing First Minnesota Foundation) along with build partner Vujovich Design Build graciously took Bluebird House under their wing, designed and built a new family room addition, bedroom, bathroom, laundry room, and storage area. Bluebird Home has finally spread their wings!
In 2020, the Housing First Minnesota Foundation along with build partner, Becker Building and Remodeling are taking on the renovation of Saratoga House!
